Two Fridays ago, I went to a fashion show hosted by Styleta, our new fashion student organization on campus. The venue in the DUC Commons had a homey feeling and the girls set up a makeshift walkway right down the middle of the three rows of seats. The yellowish lighting there made my photos grainy but that's okay - Lightroom to the rescue! I owe some of these photos to their Facebook page (credit: Becky Mak) and feel free to check out all of the models and outfits there. I was sad I didn't RSVP in time for a goody bag because they were giving out all sorts of beauty products too. The trunk show immediately after featured a lot of the pieces that the models wore and I nabbed a cool versatile camel sweater seen in a previous outfit post here.
On the topic of modeling, there were some amazing hidden talent stomping that runway. The pieces varied from flashy dinner party dresses to casual menswear and I couldn't stop staring at the shoes. There was also the adorable fur cape, but then found out it was real fur so I put it back on the rack. Also, those crazy punk hairstyles in the last round were awesome. A lot of work went into this fashion show and I'm hoping to see more of these shows from Styleta in the near future. Whilst I obsess for hours hunting for the perfect SLR and lens I want to save up for ... I'm slowly finding my way around Lightroom. Today I found the "expand tab" button and now I can edit all sorts of fun things. Improvement day by day! PC Vignette 2 is also a fave for making the models the center of attention.
Last but not least, I had the opportunity to interview Yifan, the Style Director at WashU, to learn a little bit more about what Styleta is all about.
